Q: What are people saying about A Real Fine Mess?


“A Real Fine Mess accomplishes everything a good blues record ought to – it’s assertive, organic, and infectious, and continually looks forward while paying homage to the past.”
Blues Rock Review

“inventive and infectious”
– Roots Music Report 

“a mashup of good-times bar blues, old-fashioned Chuck Berry-style rock and roll and Talking Heads-like funk breakdowns”
– NOW Magazine 

“an innovative high-water mark for two-person combos. … 14 fabulous tracks.”
– Winnipeg Free Press 

“a truly fresh take on a whole mess of old sounds.”  
– The Georgia Straight 

Their dynamic album is one thing, but it’s another when they can deliver the same sweat and energy when their set is completely stripped down.
